For better or worse, terrorism will always be with us. There's plenty of policy discussion to be had about exactly how to deal with that, in general and in the wake of bid Laden's death, but apart from that: we, the American people, deserve something real, immediate, and practical. The color-coded security status is already headed for the Smithsonian, but what else from the bin Laden era could we get rid of? I mean little, annoying, things, that we can take this occasion to eliminate; I'm not talking about major policy changes, for better or for worse.
My preference? Runner up would be the words "homeland security," beginning with changing the horrid name of the misbegotten department (although actually dismantling the department at this point would probably be as big a mistake as constructing it in the first place). But no question -- what I'd really like is for the president to ask Bud Selig to get rid of that awful "God Bless America" seventh inning stretch. Please.
Again, I'm not looking for major policy efforts in this thread, just annoying junk that we can jettison. What do you suggest?
